end faq

The Opportunity I was granted is Living in Palestine throughout my study time

I graduated with BS in Electronics Engineering, but as soon I finished I worked in art fields. Started with writing short stories, then working as an art director, then went back to work with my engineering certificate to be in an Engineering project management firm in Saudi Arabia. After that, it was clearer to me that I should pursue my art side. I just finished my second master's study in Germany. Both were in art. The first study was in Digital Media in which I focused on photography and filmmaking. My final project was a short film that was successful in film festival and received several prestigious awards. My second master was in film school in which I focused on writing and directing. During the study, I finished one short film and now finishing another short film as my final project. I also started to write my first feature length script. As I wasn't really in love with engineering, my thoughts about Al Quds University are very subjective; they only reflect my feelings to the topic that I had to finish without any real connection to. Most important for me was that through the University I was given the chance to live in Palestine which was the main aspiration for all my stories.
